Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar is India’s first leading actress who envisions award ceremonies to be gender-neutral in the near future. His reasoning is based on what is happening at award ceremonies around the world.
Recently, the Berlin Film Festival honored Maren Eggert with its first gender-neutral acting award. The new award means that both male and female actors are now competing in the same category. The Gotham Awards announced that their Best-Actor and Best-Actress awards are being combined into a single lead-performance category, starting with this year’s November ceremony.
The Emmys announced that in 2021, any acting trophy can replace “actor” or “actress” with a neutral term for “performer”, even if they maintain gender-segregated competition. The Venice Film Festival is also following the Berlin festival to offer gender-neutral awards.
Bhumi says, âDuring the last year, it was extremely encouraging to see award ceremonies move away from gender awards. Even from our context, if roles are written strong enough for women and other genders, we may eventually get to where we have gender-neutral rewards. “
She adds, âAn artist should be known for the kind of work that one does and not seen through the lens of gender. I see each of us as artists who strive to achieve equality. can contribute to.
Bhumi feels that calling all artistes an artist is a step in the right direction. She says, âWe all know that we live in a non-binary world and I think such steps will only promote inclusivity. It would be a welcome step towards adoption of all genders. The time is now The time has come for us to break down these walls and celebrate raw, real talent without the filter of gender.â
